This 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air sedan is the icon with all the right
upgrades. After all, it has the classic look you love with upgraded
V8 power, an A/C interior, and a well-coordinated color package
that's not afraid to hit the road. So if you're looking for a true
cruiser, dig into this Tri-Five.
A '56 Chevy done in a two-tone always knows how to attract
attention. This keeps close to the Harbor Blue and India Ivory of
the era, but this is a more modern application that gives you
plenty of gloss in the white and a terrific metallic in the blue.
We love the '56 because it has a distinct grille for this year, and
only the Bel Air got the streak of color running the full side. You
can see it all so well thanks to a complete brightwork setup. There
is plenty of cruiser style with the half-chrome headlights, large
dual exhaust tips, and bright outlaw-style wheels. This all hints
at a car that's made to drive. So that's how you should view the
full package. It has all the right iconic pieces where you can
shine them up for a good presentation, but from day one, you'll
cruise out of this showroom and won't be nervous to take this on
the open road.
Inside is an interior that coordinates with the exterior's
two-tone. The exterior blue returns on the dash, steering wheel,
and door tops. The white returns for a great 1950s cruiser tuck and
roll style on the seats and matching door panels. Not only do the
two wide bench seats give family and friends plenty of room to
spread out, but also there's an upgraded AM/FM stereo and cold
blowing R-134a air conditioning to keep them all happy. Plus,
upgrades like column-mounted Sun Tach and Sunpro auxiliary gauges
let you know this is a driver's classic.
While the Tri-Fives launched the small block V8 era, the 350
cubic-inch V8 under the hood here is larger than anything the
factory was offering in '56. More than just an upgraded
displacement, this also has an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an
Edelbrock intake, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. More than
just powerful, a good driver means a solid presentation that
includes good hoses and an aluminum radiator with an electric fan.
A three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, wide modern
tires, and power brakes w/discs up front mean that this upgraded
classic is ready to enjoy on the road.
This is the cool Tri-Five that delivers on the look, power,
features, and price. That makes for an irresistible package you
need to get your hands on before someone else does. Call
